If they were going to use it on the F30 it would likely be in the 328i as the inline 4 cylinder turbo probably has the least on paper ability to make enthusiasts sounds. In all the initial reviews (list of them here) the N20 in the 328i does indeed sound a little diesel like (reviewers words, not mine). So if they're using the technology it isn't working
